Stinson Leonard Street has a historic and longstanding commitment to pro bono legal service to our communities. Today, we have numerous pro bono partnerships in place, including the Deinard Legal Clinic in the Phillips neighborhood of Minneapolis and the partnership with Marlborough Neighborhood of Kansas City. Firm attorneys serve low-income clients with a variety of legal needs: family law, immigration, housing, government benefits, consumer and other issues.
Firm attorneys also volunteer legal services to organizations such as the Volunteer Lawyers Network, Advocates for Human Rights, The Minnesota Disability Law Center, the Children's Law Center of Minnesota, Volunteer Lawyers & Accountants for the Arts, Legal Aid, Midwest Innocence Project, Kansas Legal Services, D.C. Bar's Advocacy & Justice Clinic, Great Circle, Arizona Volunteer Attorney Program and various other programs. Each year our attorneys provide hundreds of hours of pro bono legal representation for dozens of nonprofit organizations on environmental, civil liberties and other issues. In addition, they donate time to a number of individual pro bono projects.
Our pro bono efforts are managed by our Pro Bono Director, Theresa Hughes, and a standing Pro Bono Committee. Our Deinard Legal Clinic is administered by eight attorneys and the Pro Bono Director. We invite you to learn more about our pro bono activities and community involvement.
